Product Description


If you are in the market for a fixed compact camera in a stylish surveillance dome, then look no further than the Bosch LTC 1412-20 FlexiDome I Color Fixed Dome Camera. The LTC 1412-20 is an easy-to-install color camera with a convenient feature set and outstanding reliability, making it perfect for indoor applications where you wish to conceal your camera angle, such as retail outlets, casinos, museums, malls and bank or hotel lobbies. These cameras are easily mounted on ceilings or walls and can blend in elegantly with their environment. A lightly-tinted dome masks the camera angle without significant f-stop loss.

This color camera utilizes a 0.25-inch CCD (charge-coupled device) sensor, with 510-horizontal by 492-vertical active picture elements and a 1/60 to 1/100,000/sec shutter speed, according to the EIA (Electronic Industrial Alliance) standard. This produces a resolution of 330 TVL (TV-lines) with a S/N (signal to noise) ratio of 46 dB standard and 18 dB maximum for the AGC (Automatic Gain Control). The LTC 1412-20 has adjustable positioning with 120-degree horizontal, 120-degree vertical and 360-degree rotational range. The 3mm lens has a light sensitivity of 4.5 Lux to achieve a minimal usable picture and 22 Lux to achieve full video. With features such as white balance, backlight compensation, aperture correction and line-lock, this camera provides high-quality, configurable pictures. The LTC 1412-20 has a wide AC voltage range and can operate in temperatures from -10 to 45-degrees Celsius.

Technical Features:

  • Sensitivity: down to 4.5 Lux for usable picture and 22 Lux for full video
  • Horizontal resolution: 330 TVL
  • S/N ratio: 46 dB regularly, 18 dB maximum for AGC
  • Dimensions: approximately 11.5 x 8 centimeters (Diameter x H)
In short, the LTC 1412-20 is a reliable, and economical addition to any monitoring system. Designed to be used indoors, the LTC 1412-20 has a manually adjustable viewing direction with a ball-mounted construction that ensures a stable view. With a wide dynamic range and Bosch's proprietary digital-signal processing, you get optimum contrast and a clear object picture. Users should note, however, that the CCD sensor may become permanently damaged if exposed to long hours of direct sunlight or halogen light.

About Surveillance Camera Technical Features
Lux rating is the measurement used to indicate how sensitive a camera is to light, and stands for the level of light reflected off a piece of paper by a candle from one meter away. Thus a sensitivity of three Lux would mean a camera could generate an acceptable picture of a piece-of-paper-sized object that was illuminated by the equivalent of three candles from one meter away. The lower the Lux level, the better the camera's ability to work in low-light conditions. The camera's resolution should be greater than or equal to the resolution supported by the system's recorder or monitor. The S/N, or signal to noise ratio, is an important measure of a camera's quality. A poor camera, low-light conditions or poor wiring causes "noise" which consumes processing power and disk space. A camera with a wide dynamic range is ideal, especially for recording areas in which both indoor and outdoor light are present. CCD (charge-coupled device) sensors provide high-quality images that are less susceptible to noise. CMOS (complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor) sensors offer less image quality, but are usually more cost-effective and energy efficient.

About Dome Cameras
A dome camera is one of the most common indoor security camera styles. Mounted on the ceiling, and often built to be tamper-resistant, dome cameras are designed to be visually appealing and more secure than other types of security cameras. A true dome camera enables a continuous 360-degree pan and 90-degree tilt operation, providing for extensive room coverage. One disadvantage of dome cameras is that they usually are not suitable for low-light conditions and must be used in well-lit areas.
